Project Description

(Text submitted by the Architect)

This project was born from a need of infrastructure improvement to the national highway that goes through the city, parallel to the river. The local administration saw the project as an opportunity to think beyond engineering and conduct a public competition where the main focus was to combine the highway with public space through the recovery of the city’s waterfront, an idea that had been in the making for 50 years.
